WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Ms. Numata has designed a afternoon of music entitled Looking Forward Through Bac. This program strives to illustrate the vast influence J.S. Bach's 6 Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin have had on subsequent solo violin works through to the twentieth century. Musical pairings include Bach's Sonata in G Minor and Béla Bartòk's Sonata for Solo Violin followed by the imitable Chaconne (from Bach's Partita in D Minor) and Luciano Berio's Sequenza VIII.
